IEA Hunt Seat National Finals Makes Triumphant Return in Perry, Georgia

Friday, April 30, 2021 (Columbus, Ohio) – The Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) celebrated the successful return of the 19th Annual Hunt Seat National Finals on April 22-25, 2021 at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry, Georgia. Complications of the COVID pandemic forced IEA to cancel their 2020 National Finals (then slated for Burbank, California) and re-group for the 2020-2021 IEA Season. Despite pandemic-related challenges faced by everyone, IEA leadership, coaches, riders and parents pulled together and safely hosted more than 900 individual horse shows from August to the present to qualify more than 400 riders from across the nation for the 2021 IEA Hunt Seat National Finals.
